I notice that the fake birds of prey have been removed from the rods that they were attached to at DUB, is this related to the bird strike that happened at the weekend? Speaking of birds, I think adding an additional bin to the spotting areas and actually emptying the bins regularly might be appropr...Jump to post

Delta's website showing #177 diverted to JFK, before it even departed, and then continuing on to ATL. Anybody know what's up? DL seems to be having a few tech issues recently. The DL 45 today is also having issues. Not sure what the dispatch reliability on the 764ER is like but the fleet is coming ...Jump to post
Adding a few piers to the 100s stands that are closest to terminal 1 would definitely help. They really need to get more pier space built though, I think a cut and cover tunnel with travellators to a remote pier parrallel to the new runway would be very possible from an engineering point of view (an...Jump to post
Sorry yes I meant the 100 gates (pier D). I assumed it's because the 300 gates are already full of long haul widebodies in the late morning but I dont see why they couldn't put the A340 on one of the 100 gates that's closest to the terminal. I think that's what they usually do with Air Transat and I...Jump to post
24,000 passengers have used Dublin - Beijing route in first year.
http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2019-0 ... 182795.htm
That seems to be a load factor in the region of 50% to 55% ?

Are Lingus stated on Instagram recently that all aircraft including the 757s will be getting the new livery, I assume this was an error.

Hainan flights to Edinburgh and Beijing are back on sale from the 1st of September. Good news. I would like to see the Shenzhen flight continue but with the loads seen so far it may not be realistic. While we can probably live without the Shenzhen route considering it's proximity to Cathay in Hong ...Jump to post
A C130 Hercules is in Dublin at the moment, I assume its transporting vehicles for Nancy Pelosi's visit. Interesting about paint discrepancy on the tail on the Aer Lingus A321neo. I think the livery has grown on a lot of people but I still think the titles are too small, especially on the A330s and ...Jump to post

Does anyone know if the Particular Evelop airlines A330 being used as a sub for the Norwegian flights from Dublin has seat back IFE?
EC-MII is the reg.
Edit: it does.
Are Aer Lingus maintaining the same baggage allowance and free drink + snack that cityjet offered under it's own brand on the Avros or has it reverted to the same levels as EI mainline? EI website seems to suggest it's the same as the basic EI product now.Jump to post
Aer Lingus have updated their website with a preview of the ATR and 757 in the new livery although its unlikely the 757s will wear it.

The use of the 321neos on some european routes will free up some 320s. Unless they plan on disposing of the existing 321s. There's an argument however for an additional type to be introduced into the fleet, likely operated by a third party, with the C series or Embraer E190 being the most suitable a...Jump to post
Norwegian confirms temporary Ireland summer operation from 31 March – 10 April after 737MAX grounding
https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/norw ... -10-april/
Seriously doubt that, the A220 is much larger and more expensive than the ATRs so would require demand on Stobarts EI regional routes to almost double. I definitely think the A220 would be a good fit for the Aer Lingus network but would fill a gap between the ATR and the A320 rather than replacing t...Jump to post
What is the work being done in front of the 200 gates / terminal 1 at DUB? Red and white barriers have been erected there recently. I'm assuming it's work on the taxiways. Can be seen in the background of this photo. Anyone know what it is? https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/39995890213/in/...Jump to post

Just watched a news report on the unveiling and the livery on the A330 looked undeniably blue on the TV screen. EI management really should consider the public response to the new livery before painting the rest of the fleet, there are clearly issues with the shade of teal chosen. I seen the A320 to...Jump to post
Agreed that it looks better on the A320 Still not sure I follow EIs point that the new brand internationalises the airline! EI has spent 75 years plus "paddy'ising" every aspect of the airline and now it's not cool to be a paddy? Go figure.... :hissyfit: 'Internationalising' was the main ...Jump to post
Its not exactly ugly but its very underwhelming. If they used one or two more colours such as gold or very dark orange on the stripes at the tail and made it larger and inverted like the Thai livery it would have been much stronger. The Aer Lingus logo is too small. The font on the older logo was cl...Jump to post

Like most other things in the airlines history (I count 6 different re-brands since starting operations in 1994) the Superjet operation clearly has not gone as planned for Cityjet.

I have commuted to Dublin city centre from that area several times, it takes not less than 2 hours to drive to the city centre from Moate in the early morning.
